Y’know? We think we like it; probably more than we should.

Granted, one must always question one’s positive reaction to a tricky dress worn by Cate Blanchett, who has a distinct talent for camouflaging a frock’s trickiness with her innate cool sophistication, but we think this works for her. Looks a little too full in the lower half, though. And we’d have liked a darker lining, we’re thinking. And it makes her bust look way lopsided. Okay, maybe it’s not that great a look, but it’s got a little bit of a head-turning weirdness about it that sets it apart from the usual sheer/lace/crochet/whatever black dress. She’s making it work more than it should. Let’s put it that way.
